Seven years ago, Ms. George started coordinating the Leaders of Tomorrow Gala for WMAA. She immediately realized that the Academy was a team of passionate educators with a shared vision for all students. She was hooked! In the past several years, she has assisted with the efforts to build a Development Office, establish the West Michigan Aviation Academy Foundation, and develop community relations, alongside the Academy’s Leadership team and the WMAA and WMAA Foundation Boards.
Ms. George comes to West Michigan Aviation Academy after spending 22 years with Forest Hills Public Schools, where she was the Director of the Forest Hills Fine Arts Center and District Cultural Arts and Instructional Services Coordinator. Additionally, she has been active in the community, serving on several Boards over the past 25 years.
Before moving to West Michigan, Ms. George was the Assistant Director of Campus Programs for Albion College. She has an undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh in Communications/Theater and Business and a Masters degree in Student Affairs in Higher Education/Event Management from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
In addition to her enthusiasm for work, she loves spending time with her family.
